Arsenal fans react to anniversary of Ozil debut

There is not too many players in the Premier League who split opinion as much as Mesut Ozil, with some believing he is the best thing since sliced bread while others claim he is a weak link in the Arsenal side.

It is fair to say opinions have shifted significantly since he signed from Real Madrid in 2013, with a high being his World Cup success with Germany the following year but a low point being suffered so far in 2019.

Returning from a disastrous World Cup campaign in Russia, Ozil has struggled for form so far this season and has seen Unai Emery use him sparingly as a result – dropped for the victory against West Ham and being hauled off in the second half of the following match against Cardiff City.

It remains to be seen whether Emery can get Ozil back to his best and fans have been teased about what that is like by the club on social media, who posted a clip to celebrate five years since he made his debut with the Gunners.

Many fans took the opportunity to respond and the vast majority of responses were supportive. We have gathered some of the best below.
